Ok. So I am looking at the news, we have the tea partiers who are pissed off, for what they believe are good reasons, about the lack of true conservative values and leadership in government.
One complain I hear is that once a person gets elected and go to Washington, they begin to compromise and become too liberal (Whats interesting though is many liberals feel that their guys are too conservative). The idea is that these politicians should continue to espouse true conservative values such as small government, lower taxes, strong national defense, etc.
My question is, is that even possible or it is simply a fact of life that being in a leadership position necessarily moderates a person?
